The garbage-talking bros from Madden
Andrew Belton makes a living playing Madden which is a game that he doesn't really like.
Through his YouTube videos he challenges "trash-talkers" who send him infuriating Instagram DMs, and arguing with vibrant language that they could punch him to the ground. Therefore, Belton takes his time fighting with randosand sometimes a pro athlete -- while teasing and taunting them for the benefit of his YouTube viewers. This is what that he loves winning, particularly when it's against people who are so inconsiderate. He encourages them to take reckless passes and urges them to go for it in the fourth quarter, when it's best to take an option to punt.
In watching Belton's channel ABGotGame The only thing Belton can roast more than his rivals? Madden itself. A common refrain is "This game is garbage" and "this game is so bad." Throughout any video, Belton is cursing the game's creator, EA Sports, like it is some kind of malevolent god. An errant throw? "EA!" Taking a sack? "EA! !" Missing an easy interception?
In January 2022, he posted an online video that read "I've never seen this before...You win EA...I'm ever playing Madden again ..." But just a few days later, Belton posted another Madden video. If you'd been following his channel for a long time, as I was, you'd know he was never going to go away.
What's funny about Madden -- the sole NFL certified video gaming franchise after 34 years of existence is that despite its immense popularity, you only hear is complaints about it.
The primary criticism, that is repeated time and time again, is that each year's version is only a slight upgrade over the last. Because EA Sports has the exclusive license, it's the only company that can create a "simulation-style" NFL game. This means that the developer is under no pressure to meaningfully improve the game each year. In 2020, an enthralling twitter campaign was launched to urge the league to release EA as its official partner #NFLDropEA. Even with cheap madden 22 coins the social media furore and the coordinated review-bombing of games' Metacritic site, Madden 21 sales were substantially higher. This year's Madden 22 did well, also, and the series continues to be the most-seller sports franchise in history.
